Physical Disabilities and Sensory Impairments

There are 13.3 million Disabled People Living in the UK

Connected Care technology such as telecare and telehealth has a key role to play in supporting people with physical disabilities and sensory impairments in a way that promotes independence as well as contributing to safeguarding.


Promoting Independence and Contributing to Safeguarding

Technology can make a difference to people with all kinds of abilities. From managing risks such as fires or falling, to aiding communication and helping to deliver greater privacy or dignity, technology can enable people to have more control over the way they live their lives. With public sector funding under increasing pressure, it is more important than ever that we realise the potential of enabling technologies to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of people with disabilities, and help our health, housing and social care systems to support their needs effectively.
